forms of speech
a guide to the various types of politcal speech, with proper responses.

stem-winder. a particularly rousing oration. stand up & cheer.
guy: yeah!

tub-thumper. the same only more so. wave a sign.
guy: yeah!

thump-sucker, a speech of depth & thoughtfulness, or lots of statistics. remain seated. (see also nose-picker.)

teeth-grinder. a speech that stirs resentment, esp. toward the other party's crummy candidate.
guy: ngh ooh ngh ooh, i oughta-

knuckle-dragger. a more proactive form of teeth grinder. appeals to your cro-magnon side.

stool-softener. not a speech you need linger for. find the exit and use it.
